3rd Week Post Partum

I need a new way to organize this log; since I gave birth on a Sunday, I guess I’ll just use the days of the week beginning with Sunday. This week the sore throat was still hanging around, but was better on the days following a good nights sleep.

Sunday (day 15): Pushups, one arm rows, 1 set of shoulder flys, planks, leg floats and various stretches. Did this around 9:00 PM. The little one was sleeping and the big one was actually sleeping also, he took a 4 hour nap from 5:30 – 9:30 Pm. Not ideal, but I did exercise.

Monday:  Walked to Atlantic avenue, Mateo in the stroller, Ana Lupe in the baby carrier. That took about 25 minutes. Walked back, but went also out of the way to a playground and spent some time at the playground. Approximately 40 minutes walking.

Tuesday: 10 minute walk to local park and back.

Wednesday: Same as above, total of 20 minutes walking. Did some kegels at night and some activating of the abdominal muscles.

Thursday: Workout at home while Ana Lupe was awake and looking at the world around her: lunges (front, back and side), sun salutations, 2 sets of pushups (I’m still on my knees and I can only do 8, but it will get easier), single knee floats, plank and side plank. Plank with lifting one foot off the ground: great abdominal strengthener. Later in day: long slow walk 30 minutes and then another 45 minutes. In between the two walks we went to the playground and ate at a restaurant.

Friday: Nothing of note, not sure I even left the house…

Saturday:  45-50 minute walk/jog with Mateo. We did 3 loops, but Mateo really wasn’t into just doing the loops, so lot’s of starting and stopping and negotiating, but still it was some exercise. Did pushups, rows, shoulder flys, knee floats, planks with Mateo climbing on top of me and other pelvis stabilizing exercises since I did begin to feel the looseness of the pelvis while doing the morning jog.  Later in day 20 minute walk to Fort Greene Park while carrying Ana Lupe.
